    not so much for the '80 Turbo TA though. honestly, the best thing for that car is to ditch the 301. i wonder what would happen if you put the turbo stuff on a REAL Pontiac engine like a 400 or a 455? :dunno:

    It would still suck. :)

    Carbureted turbos are LAME compared to EFI. Dare I say more than carbed turbo 3.8 vs EFI turbo 3.8? :)

    I own a '99 Z28 and used to frequent LS2.com a lot, but I don't like the atmosphere there.

    CamaroZ28.com is cool - I've been a member there since 1999, and though I don't post often, I read alot.
